    My first fixed geared bikes were schwinns. I loved them. But i didn't realize how heavy they were because I had nothing to compare to. Now when I lift up a schwinn I laugh. Get any other old roadbike frame and you'll be better off. Weight means so much.

    $100 is on the expensive side. Depending on your location, I've seen them being sold for half the cost of that. I bought my complete continental for $40.

    I commute with a fixed continental and I don't care if it's heavy. Gives me a better workout.
